MY HIPS DON'T LIE!!!


It's true...my hips don't lie! And when my pants start feeling even a teeny bit snug, I know it's time to do some cuttin' back.
One of the first things I begin doing is cooking up some fish. And one of favorites is:
TUNA!
And I don't mean that mushy mess in a can.
I mean a fine filet of Yellow Fin Tuna!
Usually very pricey, especially here in the mid-west! So...I wait for a fish sale, and can find frozen tuna steaks for around $6 a pound.
I take a tuna filet and marinate it for maybe 20 minutes in a teriyaki sauce, or Dales steak seasoning, which is mostly soy sauce. I heat up my tiny cast iron skillet with a drizzle of olive oil, till nearly smokin', then add my tuna steak. Sear on one side, then flip and sear on the other. I like my tuna med/rare, and on the rare occasion I have cooked it beyond that point, it has pretty much destroyed it. Dry and tasteless. I serve it with a fresh romaine, tomato and cuke salad, and a glass of dry chardonnay. One of my all-time favorite Chards is an Australian wine from Lindeman's...Bin 65. Usually I can find it on sale for around $6 a bottle.
If I have this meal for lunch a couple of times in a week, (and been watchful for my other meals) I have ALWAYS dropped the extra couple of pounds that have crept up.
Because,
Like Shakira

I love tuna too! One of the nicest things about living so near the ocean is the wonderful seafood we get to enjoy. After all the candy today, I think I ought to go pick up some tuna too :o)

I need to listen more to my hips... sigh. But it's not the hips that get me into trouble... it's the lips! My eyes think your tuna and salad look nice... my lips preferred the look of the apple pie my mom made and sent home with me. Lips won.
